Dredging research at Texas A&M University is multi-faceted, to drive technology innovation, as well as physical and numerical modeling to simulate the design, performance and monitoring of beneficial use sites, and specially engineered aquatic placement cells.

Dredging Research Areas

Some of our research interests include:

  • Advances in dredge technologies – We research driving better methods, improving precision, advances in productivity, thin-layer placement, environmental dredges and survey methods.
  • Beneficial uses – This area includes evolving methods to promote nature-based solutions, such as environmental restoration, reuse of materials, and coastal erosion protection.
  • Cost estimating tools – We look into improvements in production and estimating tools to better predict dredging, placement, and other operational costs.
